This healthy cafe in Galle is hidden in a courtyard back from the road which serves many delicious and wholesome treats. The menu consists of butternut fritters, salad Thali and the roasted vegetable and goats cheese tart to name a few. The banana bread and carrot cake are both a must try, as are the fresh juices and passionfruit soda too. Specialising in fresh, locally sourced Sri Lankan produce, Poonie’s Kitchen is best described in two words – mouthwatering nourishment.

 

2. A Minute By Tuk Tuk

Overlooking the azure sea, A Minute by Tuk Tuk is a divine dining place and one of the most popular Galle restaurants. The place can be reached in a minute by tuk-tuk from Galle Fort; hence the name. Book a table at the deck or at the swanky bar and relish their sumptuous seafood platter local food, and continental dishes. As it opens early in the morning; a wholesome breakfast here before the day excursion is always a good idea.

Favourites on the menu include the egg hopper with the prawn curry and an array of piquant sambals. The ambiance is relaxed and homely, and gives you a taste of unique home-style Sri Lankan food.
